t of the way there. We dont want to
Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley admits he will miss Neil Balme, saying he wanted to work with the respected AFL football boss for another year.Richmond scored a major off-field coup on Monday when they announced Balme would return to the club as general manager of football.While Balme had some coaching success in SA and the AFL, he has found his true niche as a football department manager.He had consistent success in that role in two stints at Collingwood, while it was no coincidence Geelong won three premierships while Balme was their football boss.Buckley said on Monday night he had no say in the changes at Collingwood in the past few weeks, where veteran administrator Graeme Allan was appointed to run their football department.Allen effectively took over the role from Balme, who was moved to a coaching director role.I wasnt privy to the decision that was made because its made higher up the chain than me, Buckley told AFL 360.Im looking forward to working with Gubby (Allen) but that doesnt mean I dont wish Balmey had accepted that director of coaching role for 12 months, selfishly.But I understand the reasons for him choosing to go to Richmond.Buckley heaped praise on Balme, who left Geelong in 2014 to return to Collingwood.I am (disappointed) because I enjoy Balmey, Buckley said.Hes a great football person - hes played a really important role for us over the last couple of years and for me personally.Were in much better shape as a footy department than we were when he came in and like youd hope to see whenever your time comes, hell leave us in a better place than (when) he came in.

Nike Dunk Cheap Wholesale . LOUIS -- Heading into the final stretch of the season, the issues for the Chicago Bears banged-up defence only seem to be getting worse. West Ham United fans get their first taste of Premier League action at Londons Olympic Stadium when they host Bournemouth in Stratford on Sunday.The Hammers officially moved from their old Upton Park ground to the home of the 2012 London Olympics this summer. And while Slaven Bilics side have already played two Europa League fixtures at what the clubs owners optimistically expect to be called London Stadium, this will be the first league football match ever played at the ground.The best way to settle is to win, Bilic said. A win on Sunday hopefully will make it really feel like a warm home. Victories are what makes settling in much easier.Its not intimidating until you make it intimidating with your quality. I felt and the guys felt that the atmosphere was really great in our two games there so far and you could feel the bond between the fans and the players.The 2016-17 season started with a bang for the Hammers, with this contest coming at the end of a hard week. Bilics team lost to Chelsea on Monday evening before facing the inconvenience of a Europa League qualifying fixture on Thursday night. But injury problems have further compounded the difficulty of that packed schedule.Midfielders Dimitri Payet, Manuel Lanzini and Sofiane Feghouli are all struggling for full fitness, while Aaron Creswell is out until November. And theres been even worse news for Bilic, with his star summer signing Andre Ayew ruled out until 2017 with a serious knee ligament injury.Bournemouth have had a busy summer, bringing in Liverpools Jordan Ibe, Leeds Lewis Cook and Le Havre forward Lys Mousset in particularly eye-catching deaals.dddddddddddd They also added experienced midfielder Marc Wilson, youngsters Brad Smith and Emerson Hyndman and loan-signing Nathan Ake from Chelsea.Its an impressive series of signings by the Cherries.Not least because they complement strikers Benik Afobe and Lewis Grabban -- who are entering their first full seasons at the club after January arrivals -- and will be joined by the clubs record defensive signing Tyrone Mings when he recovers from an injury that kept him out of action for much of his first year at Bournemouth.I do feel its a stronger squad than last year, we have more numbers and a very good work ethic, manager Eddie Howe told the clubs official website. When you recruit you have to make sure you dont lose your identity and the pleasing thing for me is that everyone has had a great mentality towards their training.Im satisfied that were 99 percent of the way there. We dont want to add too many more to the squad, theres potentially one position well look at -- a younger talent. Unless we did that deal we will stay as we are.Ive gone on record to say its difficult to attract Premier League players in their prime, weve gone down a younger route of recruitment, but were delighted with the player weve brought in, theyve got great character, attitude and will be very good players for us.Bournemouths fixtures with West Ham brought a flurry of goals last season. The Cherries lost 3-1 on their trip to east London, but ran out 4-3 winners in a classic on the south coast.
